Kosmomuz – Energized

Kosmomuz is a psychedelic experimental ambient project from a Russian city Barnaul, in which four musicians are included: Anton Aniskin, Sergey Petrov, Anton Lyamkin and Alexander Kiba, who appear to be enthusiasts of playing khomuz – one of the oldest musical instruments in the world, which they use in their work. Presumably, the name “Kosmomuz” derived from “cosmic music” or, maybe “cosmic khomuz”, but in any case, the music of this group is very appreciable. Now, I’m going to say some words about their album, called “Energized”. Listening to it resembles a walk through some kind of a psychedelic surreal jungle with mysterious creatures, that are constantly following you and illuminating with varycoloured flashes of sounds. Khomuz was initially an instrument of shamans, who used it while performing their rituals. It has a very strong, vibrant and energizing sound, that imprints in space and in a human soul. And Kosmomuz did their best to energize our multidimensional space with these magic ambient piece. Their work is very artistic, it has something common with abstract and surrealistic paintings with their irregular and heterogeneous forms and images. So, have some energy from Kosmomuz.
